Beale: You know, they say that paranoids make the very best chess players because with every move, they naturally assume that their opponent is out to get them.
Fiscus: (referring to his girlfriend Cathy Martin) She's crazy about me! I keep telling her it's only a sexual realationship and nothing more!
Ehrlich: That's good! Women are suckers for integrity.
White: We're lucky to have Auschlander around to discuss these things.
Fiscus: Yeah, it's like Marie Antoniette talking about the inner mechanism of the guillotine.
Dr. Auschlander: I'm 72 years old now and dying of cancer. Ironic, isn't it? A distinguished liver man like myself betrayed by his own liver. With the radiation and the chemotherapy I'd have a slightly better chance, but the nausea, diarrhea, stomach cramps... I'd be septicemic from the skin infections...The slightest cold could easily turn into pneumonia and finish me off in a week...
Dr. Westphall: What are you going to do?
Dr. Auschlander: I'm not sure.
Dr. Westphall: You know what I think?
Dr. Auschlander: Tell me.
Dr. Westphall: You should see a doctor.
(Auschlander laughs appreciatively)
